GAME OF THRONES Officially Becomes The Most Popular Show In HBO History
Woah! We knew the numbers were very good, but now the fantasy drama series has crushed the head of its competition, The Sopranos, to become the most-watched show in the premium cable network’s history. More past the jump..
Someone finally took the crown from King Tony Soprano, as HBO announced today that their excellent fantasy series Game Of Thrones has surpassed the incredibly popular mob drama's high-point viewership with 18.4 million weekly viewers -- 200,000 ahead of The Sopranos at its peak back in 2002. Game Of Thrones is up 4 million viewers from its third season, and with two very anticipated episodes to go in this fourth season, that will probably only get higher. The next episode, "The Watchers on the Wall" airs on Sunday, June 8, followed by the season finale "The Children" on Sunday, June 15.
